The company which implements and obtains a certification for its occupational Health and Safety Management System according to BS OHSAS 18001 standard (shortly ISO 45001) has a clear and updated picture of its conformity to the regulatory requirements.

This permits the company to achieve an efficient and structured work planning, with periodic evaluation and monitoring of the performances of the system, above all in terms of analysis of work related injuries and adoption of effective actions for their reduction.

A certified occupational Health and Safety Management System gives competitive advantages, because the certified companies can obtain allowances and in the same time promote their image in a market which also cares about occupational matters.   

Moreover Italian legislation, with the entering into force of the "Testo unico in materia di salute e sicurezza sul lavoro", has increased the penalties and introduced more pressing obligations against work related injuries. The 81/2008 Legislative Decree boosted the standard even more: according to art. 30 the OHSAS 18001 system is a management model having exempting capacity according to 231/2001 Legislative Decree (Administrative Responsibility of the companies).
